Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

InfoTech is an international forum for scientists, researchers and industrial experts, to share innovations, experience and new research results in the fields of information technologies and information security; technologies for system design and intelligent systems; technological aspects of e-governance and data protection, etc. The forum is a successor of the International Conference on Systems for Automation of Engineering and Research (SAER), established in 1987 and International Workshop on e-Governance and Data Protection (EG&DP), established in 2005.

The main focus of the conference is the application of information and communication technologies for the sustainable development of various and diverse spheres of society—industry, social and corporate governance, high technology, education, military affairs, ecology.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Research on faculty engagement in computer science and e-learning environments is limited. Students in computer science majors and courses often cite the lack of engagement of their faculty as a reason for their decision to switch majors, drop out or perform poorly. With the shift to e-learning associated with the current global pandemic, reports of faculty engagement across countries and higher education systems converged to indicate a reduced level of interactivity. Using a cross-sectional sample of 39 lecturers and professors from a southern public university in Saudi Arabia, this manuscript documents empirically the low levels of computer science faculty engagement during the 2020 spring semester (March–May). The study found support for the hypotheses linking higher levels of empathetic instruction, an exhibition of exemplary performance traits, utilization of community building strategies and use of storytelling and students’ engagement. The study also found that many faculties need immediate and significant training on making their online instruction more interactive and exciting. Theoretically, the evidence presented confirms the importance of faculty engagement as the main predictor of desirable students’ outcomes across e-learning, as well as computer science learning environments.

This article aims to present a comprehensive approach with corresponding software that uses index matrices. They have been developed by the authors for an automated model-based design. One of the main goals of this paper is to propose a simple model solving technique for powering electronic devices (particularly, for all subsystems: power supplies, static power converters, electric filters, electrical loads, control systems, etc.). Index matrices, which contain first-order discrete dynamical system parameters, with real numbers as elements, are constructed in order so that voltages, amperages, and discrete values can be calculated. Simulations on a three-phase converter, as well as simulations on buck and boost DC-DC converters with PI controllers, are presented. The function of the proposed software (with examples on the aforementioned devices) is considered, and diagrams of its basic programming classes are shown. The latter draws electronic schemes and their respective graphics, and provides important characteristics. Simulink is used to verify results. Advantages of the proposed approach are a higher speed of calculations (compared to Simulink, due to a lack of differential equations) and a simpler handling of various electronic components. Additionally, a computational scalability is demonstrated. Full article
